Re: CoolIT Systems Anyone Tried?
The CoolIt Freezone does have a limitation with the quad, but it can keep up if properly tuned. For one, you need to turn the TECs all the way up. With that, it keep my OC'd Quad at 30C idle and about 58C with four instances of Orthos running. At stock clocks, it gets well down into the 20's at idle. Consider that OC'd, the Kentsfiled can push 200Watts with enough voltage. So much so, that I consider watercooling the only safe way to properly OC the quads.
One other item, there are releasing a third product with even more cooling capacity that the Freezone. I do not recall the name, but it was shown at CES. Dell is using it in an OEM capacity, as well.
